Izzy00 Posted April 16, 2014 Share Posted April 16, 2014 Hello all, I am proud to say, today is day 32 in my second Whole30 (first one was Jan 2014) and I have done it YAY! I have to admit the second one was much harder than the first because I have noticed less changes in my body (while my stomach is flatter, i am still holding fat in my upper abs). I did weigh myself yesterday and I am at 141pounds (i am 5'6. Before i started whole30 i was roughly 145) so not much weight lost. Will be measuring tomorrow morning and compare my results But I am happy i stuck with it, its made me feel better and train better. The last week was especially hard since my last 10 days were spent in a UN compound in Baghdad for work, which limited the control I had on what I can eat. I realised that week how much easier it would have been to just eat the rice and lentils they had on, or the ice cream that was just sitting there at every meal. But i didnt. I ate protein, salad (lots of it) and fruit (maybe a little too much). they had no avocado, no sweet potato which made it hard. there are no shops in the greenzone besides a tiny shop that stocked mainly soft drink, chips chocolate etc. Anyways, Now i am considering my next step. I am happy to stay on whole30 for longer, But is that realisitc? is that good for my body to never eat say chocolate again? (hehehe) I am happy not having any diary and gluten because I actually do have allergies to those things. But should I start re-introducing some stuff...? Im finding it difficult to decide, a part of me doesnt see the point. I feel much better on the Whole30. much better. But another part of me knows that i am going to need nutella at some point ... and would not eating these things make me sick in the long term if i had them occasionally?!? the only thing i can think of is to stay Paleo and not whole30, so allow some paleo treats...I am keen to hear from people who have done this and finished but not gone back to old habits.
